Standards

Providing educational opportunities in the United Arab Emirates is a privilege - not a right - a privilege which is earned on a continuous basis and which demands, of each institution, continuous high quality and an effective system of institutional effectiveness and continuous improvement.

The Commission for Academic Accreditation (CAA) of the United Arab Emirates, hereafter referred to as the Commission, uses two inter-related standards-based quality assurance processes - institutional licensure and program accreditation - to assess educational quality, thereby assuring members of the public that the licensed institutions and the accredited programs they offer indeed meet high standards. Further, the standards used have been established so as to be at a level of quality acceptable to and recognized by the academic community internationally.

The Standards for Licensure and Accreditation (2011), hereafter referred to as the Standards, published by the CAA, is accessible here in English in PDF format.

The Commission has published separate sets of Standards for Licensure and Accreditation of Technical and Vocational Education and Training. These address the special issues arising among providers of vocational and technical qualifications in the UAE. This document is also available here in PDF format.
